Your JAMII Femmes adventure

The Jamii femmes programme was really an eye opener for me. I am indeed grateful to have been part of it. The knowledge I gained is indeed invaluable and has really impacted my business. I have been able to learn the soft skills of entrepreneurship that will help me to improve my business and also my personal life in how I relate with my employees and my family.
The networking with other female entrepreneurs was superb. I meet a lot of other women and learn about other businesses on the WIA platform. Honestly, I can’t find words to express my gratitude for being part of the programme. Thank you Jamii Femmes!

Finally, please give us a quote about your motivation, your vision of Africa or your personal ambitions

My company’s vision is to contribute to the foreign exchange earnings of Nigeria by engaging specifically in value-added Agro commodities export from Nigeria to other African countries and the rest of the world. Its mission is to contribute to global food security as defined in the UN Sustainable Development Goal two through its Nigerian market in the supply of processed food both locally and internationally.
